If you’ve always thought that, four-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive are the same and are things only car enthusiasts need to understand, think again. Subaru is giving all drivers a chance to find out first hand what the difference feels like at “Subaru Faceoff,” happening Dec. 2 to 4, at the SM MOA open parking, Block 12.
Most four-wheel-drive requires a switch to activate its four-wheel drive system. Some has on-demand feature which activates only in the event of slippage. Both types of four wheel drive are generally considered as optional four- wheel drive
Subaru cars, in comparison, are designed and engineered from the very start to be all wheel drive continuously hence is also known as Subaru’s Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive or SAWD. So it’s not an accessory or an option or something that kicks in when needed. It’s there all the time providing power to all four wheels for maximum traction, balance and control regardless of driving conditions. This gives more control on wet or on perfectly dry pavements, especially during accident avoidance maneuvers. SAWD also enhances road grip under acceleration and cornering, giving increased performance and control.
If you’ve been thinking of getting a new car and you’ve put safety and performance features on the top of your list of things to consider, then head on down to the SUBARU FACEOFF. It’s your chance to get behind the wheel and feel what it’s like to drive a car with Symmetrical All-wheel Drive.
